When you are sick, injured, or entrusted to medical care, you trust that the medical devices that are recommended by professionals to be used in our treatment, healing or therapy will be safe for us to use. Sometimes these products make things worse, causing injury, illness, and even death. If you or a loved one has experienced painful side effects from a medical device, you may be entitled to compensation.
North Carolina attorney Michael Patrick is dedicated to representing North Carolina clients with lawsuits against the manufacturers and distributors of dangerous or defective medical devices.
Although all new medical devices are supposed to be tested extensively to make sure that they are safe for use with patients, many devices end up on the market without the extensive testing based on their manufacturers' claims that they are similar to devices already on the market. Many serious injuries and preventable deaths happen each year when medical devices are not properly tested or they are used without proper training and experience.
As a dangerous medical device attorney, Michael Patrick provides effective representation to clients for lawsuits involving dangerous medical devices. He assists with cases involving all types of equipment, including:
Intra-articular pain pumps
Transvaginal mesh implants/ Composix Kugel Mesh Patches
DePuy, Stryker, or Biomet metal on metal hip implants
I-Flow, Stryker and Moog Shoulder pain pumps
Da Vinci Robotic Surgery
New medical devices are introduced every year by manufacturers trying to capitalize on this growing market. There is money to be made, so many manufacturers push out new products before they are truly ready for the market. These medical devices include implants, prosthetic devices (such as artificial knees, hips and ankles), and surgical equipment (such as mesh used in hernia repair operations or transvaginal mesh operations).
If you or a loved one has experienced side effects from a medical device, you may be entitled to compensation. Michael Patrick has the experience you need to get the compensation you deserve. Call him today at his office in Chapel Hill to discuss your case.
